Refried beans are the simplest dish to cook if you’re wanting an incredible, homemade taste of Mexican-American style beans. My oldest son (4), is crazy about the warm bean & cheese breakfast tacos we eat here (at any time of day) in Texas… and it’s great to be able to whip up a big easy batch of refried beans to sate his cravings 🙂
I found a great recipe here, at slate.com, follow the directions to create this dish.
You can use dry or canned beans – only use dry if you have 4-5 hours to spare while they cook in the crock pot, canned is fine and is faster overall. Make sure to add enough salt and pepper to taste – with their warm, gentle flavor, these beans just hit the spot!
